Happy Pride Month! This morning Taylor Swift, who spent the bulk of her career being largely apolitical in the face of her overwhelming popularity, released a definitively LGBTQ-supportive video for her new single. The clip, “You Need to Calm Down,” features multiple gay icons, including drag superstars portraying some of the biggest names in music…including Cardi B.
Cardi herself, who has been both criticized for insensitivity in her problematic language choices in the past as well as more recently being very vocal in her support of wanting to improve and learn more, has fully embraced the portrayal, calling it “Soooo cute!”
